conjoined nerve

vlcassellsvvlcassells Posts: 1
I have been to three doctors and two surgeons, have had two cortisone injections, one in the L4/L5, and again L5/S1 with no relief of symptoms. The second surgeon sent me for a second MRI and told me I had conjoined nerves at the L4/L5. He also dismissed me and stated there was nothing he could do for me.

I have been on Neurontin for 11 months, and have had to increase the dosage to 1800 ml daily, to reduce the pain(,I am resisting using any pain killers), which is in the lower right lumbar area radiating through the buttox, the hip, down the outer back of the right thigh, the outside of the calf and the outside of the foot. The small toe is constantly numb. These symptoms increase and decrease depending on my level of activity, which is little to none compared to before this started.

I have researched on line for any info that would help, I have found the clinical explanation for conjoined nerve anomaly, but nothing to state if anything can be done to relieve the pain.

Anyone out there that may be or has experienced this same affliction and has any info, I need help
